4.Subaru WRX STI $34,095
Subaru has a long championship pedigree with the WRX STI models showcasing the brand’s racing focus. Don’t mistake the WRX STI as a one-dimensional rally car. It’s proven itself at the Nurburgring, and has been competing on the road tracks in the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series.
The WRX STI blasts around thanks to a turbocharged boxer engine that puts out 305-hp to all four wheels using Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive system. The delivery of that power can be modified thanks to Subaru’s driver-controlled center differential, which allows the driver to set up the split between the front and rear axles to ensure that whenever needed, there will be power and traction at the same time. That’s a pretty significant advantage at the track and something that makes the WRX STI a car to be feared when the road gets twisty.
